I am currently due for my periodic reinvestigtion for a SECRET clearance. I was arrested back in May 2007 when my initial clearance was underway. I was charged for shoplifitng (not sure the legal term for the criminal charge, maybe larceny) but was convicted of trespassing after my dealings with my lawyer and court. I was given an interim clearance but also remember it being placed on suspension for about a year because of that. A few years later, June 2010, I was caught again for shoplifitng on a military base. I was arrested by the military police and was released to my unit. I was given an Article 15 for the incident, but it was placed in my restricted files.
I have not yet started my application, but have concerns about what to disclose. Since this is a reinvestigation, and I was told that the history goes back 7 years, do I need to disclose this in my application?
I have then taken my adult life very seriously and have not done anything criminal since. This is because I was finally starting to understand the consequences that can come with these criminal charges and the effect it would have on my military career and possibly my civilian career. Please advise on if I 1. need to disclose this in my application (parts or all?), and 2. be concerned that my clearance will not be renewed?
